Fuchs Lab

My research focuses on three main themes: 1) mechanistic interactions between planktonic invertebrate larvae and small-scale physics, 2) impacts of small-scale biophysical interactions on large-scale movements and settlement patterns, and 3) predator-prey interactions and their effects on planktonic ecosystem dynamics.  

These problems are fundamentally interdisciplinary, and my work integrates empirical and theoretical approaches from fluid mechanics, physical oceanography, and quantitative spatial and community ecology.  See also the Biological-Physical Interactions Lab.
